AIPMT 2004

A compound formed by elements X and Y crystallises in a cubic structure in which the X atoms are at the face-centres. The formula of the compound is
A
XY3
B
X3Y
C
XY
D
XY2

Explanation

X atoms at the corners = $${1 \over 8} \times 8$$ = 1

Y atoms at the face centres = $${1 \over 2} \times 6$$ = 3

Ratio of atoms, X : Y = 1 : 3

Hence, formula is XY3.

AIPMT 2003

The pyknometric density of sodium chloride crystal is 2.165 $$ \times $$ 103 kg m$$-$$3 while its X-ray density is 2.178 $$ \times $$ 103 kg m$$-$$3. The fraction of unoccupied sites in sodium chloride crystal is
A
5.96
B
5.96 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2
C
5.96 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$1
D
5.96 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3

Explanation

Molar volume from pyknometric density

= $${M \over {2.165 \times {{10}^3}}}$$ m3

Molar volume from X-ray density

= $${M \over {2.178 \times {{10}^3}}}$$ m3

Volume unoccupied

= $${M \over {{{10}^3}}}\left( {{1 \over {2.165}} - {1 \over {2.178}}} \right)$$ m3

Fraction unoccupied

= $${{\left( {{{0.013M \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {2.165 \times 2.178}}} \right)} \over {\left( {{{M \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {2.165}}} \right)}}$$

= 5.96 $$ \times $$ 10-3
